Three Views on Salto del Agua, 2003

    The subject of the collaboration and the graphically elaborate catalog of the conceptual artist Anton Vidokle and the sound engineer Cristian Manzutto is the building "Salto del Agua", a 1969 built late modernist building in Mexico City. The grid-like façade structure reflects Bauhaus' wish for pure functionality of architecture, while Vidocles and Manzutto's video captures the now vacant and therefore deprived building in terms of ornamentation, decoration and design. 

    "Three insightful essays on the amazing architecturally based film by Anton Vidokle and Cristian Manzutto shot in Mexico City." Hans Ulrich Obrist with text contributions by Lauri Firstenberg & Peter Zellner, Gabriel Kuri and Gilbert Vicario. (English / Spanish)
